In February the kids and I were blessed to have participated in a 50 States Fun Swap that I just happened to discover through Facebook. It was a really fun experience, and it renewed in me a love and appreciation for the state I've spent pretty much my entire life living in. Michigan is a beautiful place to live. The Great Lakes are gorgeous, and I am SO thankful to live a short 20 minute drive from Lake Huron. The kids and I have a ton of fun exploring our area, and we look forward to venturing out as they grow and exploring more and more of the state we call home. I thought I'd share just a small sampling of the blogs I discovered in my quest to find interesting bits to share with the people we sent our state information; seven in the trade, plus one friend in Georgia, and another friend in England. We added our two friends just for fun. In the trade we sent seven packages of information in anticipation of receiving seven in return. Currently we have received five envelopes; Maine, South Carolina, Kentucky, Wyoming, and Missouri. I hope you find our Michigan adventure fun and interesting as well.
You can't think of Michigan without thinking of mittens. Unfortunately, we didn't get to try this cool craft by Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas, but it is in my back pocket for next year. I have never experimented with salt and painting, and I am thoroughly intrigued. This really looks like a lot of fun, plus there's spray bottles involved! Need I say more?
